Photo posting for Mac users
« on: May 18, 2005, 08:25:50 am »
Modification:January2011
This is my current experience:

Resize your photos yourself to no more than 450 pixels the biggest way. I do this with Preview>Tools> Adjust size>450. Then, File>Save as(choose size less than 60k and JPG)

When you go to the gallery, go to "my gallery" (top left), name a folder for your pics the first time, use "upload photo" and NOT the Juploader.

When you go to add a picture to a post, the same thing >>> choose My Gallery>choose the picture>click on the line about "add photo to post?">click yes in pop-up box>go to the tab/page where the reply is. The code and picture name should be in the reply.

6/2014 Safari works fine, now. I resize all my photos to 700 on the longer side to save time uploading with my slow connection. I can only upload by the single picture.

Be sure to scroll down in the window to find the "Add to post" button.

Sprucebunny,

I just bought this mac last week, if you have a min could you help me through this process? Pretty please....
Each time I try to upload them it says they're too big but I've already got them as small as I can figure out how to get them.

Ed    What did you use to compress them ??? If the Forum upload says it's too big , you have to optimize or compress them differently.
I had a very hard time finding an optimizer.
And I finally bought PhotoshopElements...$89.00
Couldn't find anything else. It is available as a free trial for 30 days at Adobe's website.
Try that. ;D

You still have to start with a picture that is 400x300 pixels. You can resize it when you export it from iPhoto , if you have that, or resize it in the PShop program.

Thanks for the help.

I've tried resizing when I export from I-photo but it's still too large. I've got to get one of these optimizing programs.

thanks!

If you just bought your Mac new, then it probably has Graphic Converter.  Try using that program and it will do what you want.  If you didn't get that with your computer, then try VersionTracker.com and download a copy of graphic converter.  It doesn't do all that Photo Shop Elements does, but it doesn't cost nearly as much.

Good luck

I finally realized that there is a slightly easier way to post pictures and have modified the first post .

Graphic Converter didn't help me with optimizing but I might have missed something. The ONLY optimizing utility I know of is the P-Shop Elements.

In GraphicConverter, you go to Save As, and you're given lots of options on reducing size.

Finally found a good compression software for the Mac...literally drag and drop the original foto where it says "Drop Picture Here", crop and drag off the compressed, resized and renamed copy...



Free demo can be downloaded which places a watermark on the bottom of the photo....registered version without watermark costs $11.95.

You can get "EasyCrop" at Yellow Mug Software

Thanks, Garey, I tried it. Takes a little fooling with to get right and I don't think it's quite as clear as PS Elements but it sure is cheaper.

You HAVE to crop the pic to get it to move to the second screen...that took awhile to figure out ;D

Did ya notice that it also has screen capture built in....

And ya can send/drag fotos right into mail....

And ya can drag a picture right out of a browser window...

Keep playing with it....after a couple of attempts it will just make ya go WOW  ;)

Ya...I found alot of features in my attempts to get the second screen to come up. It certainly does load faster than PS Elements and there are alot fewer buttons to push to get the job done.

Thanks ;D

I use the preview that comes with the mac under tools select  "adjust size", set to 72dpi and adjust size to fit, click "ok" when you get desired size.

Had no luck with jupload used the upload file instead.
